  • millermatic 185 spool gun kit

    i read on this thread, that there was a kit for connecting my older 185 to a spool gun i think its a 1996 model by the serial number kg189635. i know its the first one national welders received in Charlotte when i bought it . my friend bought one about 2 years latter and it has the connection points for a spool gun.

    You would need a 186871 retro-fit kit to add the Spoolmate 185 or Spoolmate 3035 spoolgun to your machine.

    Any Millermatic 185 built prior to serial # KH376829 would need this kit.

        I dug this old thread up while I was looking for info for a spool gun for my Millermatic 185. The Spoolmate 185's are hard to find, and I know that a Spoolmate 3035 will work on my machine without a retro fit kit, but I was wondering if either a Spoolmate 100, or Spoolmate 200 (I know where I can get either one relativly cheap, and hardly used) would work on my machine without a retro fit. The serial number on my Millermatic 185 is KJ305049 (I only plan on using it for small jobs that may require a bead no longer than 2" at a time, and it's not for "rush" production type jobs). I plan on eventually selling my 185, and getting a Autoset 211, or 212, so the gun would need to be able to work the Autoset also.

          The spoolmate 100 hooks up where your mig gun was.
          And the spoolmate 200 hooks up like the 185/3035 gun but the gas hookup is different. It may work for you.
          Did you look on ebay?...Bob
